I have had 4 miscarraiges and I want to adopt a baby. But I cannot afford to adopt. I am at a loss..... my heart aches for another baby. My son want to be a big brother and my husband wants a 2nd child as well.

    Check into adoption through your State's foster system. Adopting through private agencies are expensive, adopting children who need forever homes is not.

    As a pp mentioned, most foster to adopt programs are FREE! Contact your local health and human services department. They can get you pointed in the right direction.

    Have you thought about a female relative being a surrogate for you?

    Look no further than the foster system. There are lots of kids that ache for a family and siblings as much as you ache for another kid. Not only is it very, very inexpensive, you'll receive an adoption tax credit too.

    Im in the same boat. 5 miscarriages, two failed adoptions, two failed invitro procedures. we want to adopt but are running out of savings trying. Foster adoption process is a night mare. Wish we could find a private adoption

    totally random, but have you tried to take 1 chewable baby asprin every day as soon as you know you are pregnant? i had 4 miscarriages and that is how i finally had my 2 kids. apparently i just have unusually thick blood that was just too thick for a sucessful pregnancy. i have met a few women like that. 

    other than that? yes, i agree. foster is the way to go. you have to jump through a lot of hoops, but it is worth it. there is a mom at my daughters school who has 2 bio kids and 3 adoptive kids through the foster system. one of the happiest families i have ever seen!
